Natural skin care for babies

However, once they have a baby, their attention is drawn to what they are applying to their little one’s delicate skin and they start considering whether they should be making more natural choices in skin care products.  More...

Looking after sun-damaged hair

Everyone knows that the sun damages your skin but have you ever thought how the heat and UV rays might affect your hair?

The sun’s rays are very powerful – we can all recognise that through how fast sunburn can develop on unprotected skin – so it is only logical that they will have an effect on your hair. UV rays cause the most environmental damage to hair, more than blow drying and chlorine, so it is an important factor to consider if you want to look after your hair.  More...

Eczema

Eczema is a condition that affects many people of all ages, but is especially prevalent amongst infants and young children. Whilst the visible symptoms of eczema show on the skin, it is generally accepted that it is closely linked to the internal health of the body. Consequently, although creams and salves will offer some relief, they are not the complete answer to managing this condition.  More...

Organic skin care for dry skin

Most people will suffer from dry skin at some point during their lives. Some will naturally have dry skin most of the time, whilst others will find that they experience it during hormonal changes or in response to environmental factors. Dry skin can cause flaking, itching or tightness and in some cases may be linked with certain skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.  More...

The low down on liquid soap

Liquid soaps have become more and more popular in the past 15 years, both in the home and in public places such as hospitals and toilet facilities. They are now firmly resident in kitchens and bathrooms up and down the country. And for good reason; they are less prone to bacterial growth than bar soap and are less messy too.  More...

Dental dilemmas…

Just the very mention of a trip to the dentists can send even the bravest of us into a cold sweat, but looking after your mouth and teeth is a really important part of keeping yourself feeling at your best.  It has been suggested that there are links between health in the mouth and health in the body, as well as the reverse – ill health.  For example, one researcher found that gum disease raised the risk of cardiovascular disease in patients by around 2%.  It is thus in everyone’s best interests to look after their teeth.

But what is the best way of doing so?  For thousands of years, people in some Middle Eastern, Asian and African countries have used the miswak, a stick from a certain type of tree (Salvadora persica), to clean their teeth and gums effectively.  Recent research from the King Saud University has shown that this contains many natural substances which help to protect the gums from disease, kill micro-organisms in the mouth and increase salivation. More...

Happier, cleverer and better behaved children...

A major new study found that a daily dose of fish oil supplements had a dramatic effect on the abilities of underachieving children in Durham.

After just three months on the fish oils, they were reading at 18 months above their age. More than half showed a 10 per cent improvement in memory, while eight pupils improved by 20 per cent and one by 30 per cent.

Among the parents, about 35 per cent say their children showed significant improvements in reading, concentration, focus or behaviour. Many also reported that the children were much ‘calmer’, more ‘confident’ and ‘grown up’. More...

Sperm counts are falling and cancer levels are rising...

Something is very wrong somewhere, but what? The answer, says Hilary Freeman, may be uncomfortably close to home. Millions of Britons are waking up to the facts that our daily personal hygiene routines could be making us ill.

A study at the University of Reading linked chemicals called parabens in underarm deodorants with a possible breast-cancer risk, after discovering traces of parabens - preservatives thought to mimic oestrogens - in human breast tumour samples. More...

Organic Ingredients In Personal Care Products...

If we accept the principle of trying to avoid synthetic chemicals in our lives, it makes sense for us to try and use organically produced products wherever possible. This applies not only to the food and drink that we consume, but also to the products we use to clean our homes, our clothes and most importantly, ourselves. More...

Deodorants...

“What’s all the sweat about?”

One of the most common personal hygiene issues concerns a process that is absolutely essential for human life and yet which is perceived by many to be undesirable and dirty. This process is called perspiring or sweating, and it plays a vital role in maintaining normal health. More...

Skin Pollution...

An increasing number of consumers are adding organic produce to their weekly shopping list. We are all becoming more aware of the health hazards from pesticide-residues in fruit and vegetables to hormones in meats and the addition of artificial sweeteners in almost everything else.

Sun Care for Children and Babies...

No-one can have failed to notice all the publicity that has been given to the dangers of exposure to sunlight over the last couple of years. Most of the advice that has appeared in the press relates to adults and teenagers - people who can generally be expected to take some responsibility for their own health.

But what about babies and young children - what advice should parents follow to ensure that they avoid the pitfalls of too much sun exposure? More...

The Ultimate Shave...

Skin Problems...

The skin reflects the general health of the body, and skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis are a clear sign that all is not well on the inside.

It is a good indication that you are either not eating or absorbing foods properly, or are exposing your skin or your entire organism to something it doesn't like. More...

Essential Fatty Acids...

One of the latest trends in human nutrition is the increasing importance being attached to fatty acids in the foods we eat and the supplements we take.
